Well, it’s more like I have time for a random post.
My dog woke me up like this this morning. She is neither as patient, nor as effective as her predecessor was at the Jedi mind control… give it time grasshopper, give it time… talk about your mixed media metaphors…
Joulie has however mastered the “I’m-gonna-be-a-pain-in-the -butt”method of control, as she did manage to get me out of bed for five instead of the planned six a.m. Guess who is sleeping right now? No, really go ahead, guess…
Joulie is having some belly issues that I hope resolve soon. It always makes me worry when the doggy is ill. I hate to leave the house. I have to, but I hate to.
I have been really too busy lately and am going to try to slow down this week. Ironically, I haven’t had the physical situation to accommodate such activity, but maybe that’s why it happens this way, yes? To keep me going perhaps? I will always push so maybe it’s a good thing I didn’t have much opportunity to slow down or else I would be curled up on the sofa right now thinking about how much effort it is to get up and go to the bathroom or something similar. Funny thing is everyone knows that feeling from the middle of the night when you just don’t want to get out of bed. You know the old ” I had to pee six hours ago but apparently not bad enough to get up and now it’s to the point of no choice in the matter.”
I’ve also decided that I swear far too much. I am going to start trying to at least cut back and stop swearing with such intent. A occassional slip is okay in my book, but I tend toward the more vehement usage of the vernacular. I am not doing well on the actual cutting down, but as I tell my clients (and indeed must practice what I preach) the awareness needs to be there first so spend time doing that before you expect to see real change…and boy, am I aware! I am astounded at how often I am cussing with real intent…even in my thoughts…especially in my thoughts…. not as much verbally… either way it contributes to a negative vibe I don’t need.
I am now at work. My Joulie was feeling a bit better when I left. I suspect a day of rest will be good for her.
My plants welcomed me back to this office today… I’ve been gone two weeks.
I am holding myself accountable to sending out an email request that I have been putting off for some time… if I put it out here I kinda feel like I have to do it.
Have a great day!
